ALI launches data repository

Ultrasound image-management systems developer ALI Technologies continues to expand its image archiving offerings to include modalities outside ultrasound. The Vancouver, BC-based company has introduced a scalable data repository that can be used for all types of medical images. ALI DataStore features a Windows NT platform and is designed to support integrated DICOM and HL7 connectivity through its use of open standards such as Internet network protocols and SQL relational database technology.

DataStore’s ability to exchange HL7 messages directly with various HIS/RIS products is appropriate for facilities requiring half a terabyte to over 10 terabytes of data storage annually, according to the company. The system is also being marketed to OEMs as a complement to image acquisition and diagnostic workstations.
